Scabies:Black Walnut Hull Powder Testimony
Posted by John on February 06, 2005 at 12:04:39:
It started with pimples on my upper arms, then expanded from elbow to shoulders. Then they changed to blisters all over my feet, hands, sporadic on my legs, arms, shoulders. Some were huge.
Didn't want to use permethrin.
Got some black walnut hull powder, mixed it with water. Covered my body with it each night. They stopped biting. But got little nibbles still on my knuckles, in between fingers. Got them off my feet to just on my hands, then just on my left hand in the end. It was obvious I was winning the war.
So started spraying my bed with rubbing alcohol from a spray bottle. Then cover it up with blankets to let those fumes bake those little sobs.
It worked. I am laughing now because it has been a horrible time for me. The scabs are healing.
Now my scabs are almost healed. Haven't gotten bit in a week.

Walnut (Juglans, various species). Walnuts contain a chemical called juglone that is useful for dealing with mite infestations, according to pharmacognosist (natural product pharmacist) Albert Leung, Ph.D. Dr. Leung recommends making a wash by boiling a few cracked walnut shell pieces in a cup of water until about half of the water has evaporated. To create a concentrated solution, cover several whole walnuts with water and simmer until half of the water is gone. Apply the water liberally to the skin.
